The cycling season is here and to make the most of it we’ve put together a small selection of goods for sunshine fuelled adventures on two wheels. From what to ride to what to wear take a look at some of our favourite new things.
New to tokyobike, Halo Commodity produce a range of headwear that balances functionality and fashion – designed to be worn anywhere. The Shield Banner cap is packable with windproof and UV blocking functions in addition to water repellency. The lining uses a mesh to enhance the functionality and the 6-panel deep crown provides a stable fit. The mini sacoche shoulder cord can be removed and used as chin strap for the cap.
Stay hydrated. The Coloral water bottle is a design from the 1940s, a golden age of cycling, upgraded and
reengineered to keep your drink clean and cold. Fits most bottle cages.
A contemporary take on the hip pack that works on and off the bike. Super easy to access and with a rolltop design that expands or contracts as needed. Front and rear zippers access the main compartment and a multitude of interior pockets. The low-profile waist buckle is offset to minimize interference with other belts/buckles, and locks on both sides for precise and secure adjustments. If we make it to a festival this summer the leopard print one is definitely coming.
